The Jesus and Mary Chain ‘Damage and Joy’ Review: the Reid brother’s successfully reconjure their signature sound on long-awaited reunion disc.

Echo and the Bunnymen vocalist Ian McCullough remains one of the most immodest frontmen in rock, so when he declares that their new album ‘Meteorites’ is “more edgy than anything I’ve ever done”, you’re allowed an eye roll or two.
